What's with all the crazy Twilight promotion sheer ensembles? First, Kristen Stewart wore that nude lace dress with the ass-ets-revealing skirt. Teresa Palmer joined in the revealing fun with a sheer black dress. Then Ashley Green went on Anderson Live in a black pantsuit with sheer, lacy top. And for the European premiere in London, Kristen wore a black, lacy jumpsuit that was sheer on the top and the bottom.
It's SHEER MADNESS! Ordinarily I'd be wondering what's going on with this trend, but we're talking vampires here. The sheer ensembles -- especially in black -- are the perfect goth-glam look for these premieres.
I thought the jumpsuit looked weird at first, but it's growing on me. It kind of leans into Las Vegas lounge act territory, what with the sparkles and the strategic panels. But maybe that's perfect for Breaking Dawn 2? I mean, the movie itself is heavy on glitzy artifice (without giving too much away).
I'd love to see the pantsuit on someone who actually has real, smoldering sex appeal -- that's the other thing that makes this jumpsuit on Kristen kind of awk. (I almost posted the shot of her doing a thumbs-up on the red carpet. Oh for the love of ...) She's, you know, KStew. She never looks more herself than when she's in a faded t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers. She's got more of a tomboy thing going on -- which is the one thing the pantsuit has going for her as opposed to a dress. Otherwise you can totally tell that jumpsuit wishes it were on a body that knows how to wear a black lace jumpsuit.
Now with all these hot sheer outfits at the Breaking Dawn premieres, I'm kind of thinking this may be the look for the holiday season -- for the rest of us. Maybe we can't pull off Kristen's lace jumpsuit, either, but a black lace top over a black tank would probably look smashing at a holiday party. Now release your own inner vampire.
Would you dare to try a black, sheer top?
